Is overtime a for sure thing during peak? Do you think there will be a peak season because of the "supply" shortage?

I love my fat weekly checks with OT!

Depends on your DC. Voluntary? Almost definitely. Mandatory? That’s a toss up

It’s a crapshoot. Last year, it was approved most of the year and mando was badly utilized in fall season. The year before? Tons of ot.

Hyfr. My biggest like check was like 1700 something gross. If you do the holidays strategically and maximize your payout then you can make a lot. Right through Christmas and New Year’s time. For me working over 56 hrs isn’t worth it. I didnt see it because of taxes, and the rest is more valuable. Last year was my 2nd year and I grossed 52k. My buddy shit he do 70k. We warehouse workers.

You will see it. You have to adjust your withholdings. You will get a bigger refund come tax time.

At my DC it's mostly voluntary. The people who want OT are able to get it. You can flex up in mytime and generally it will be approved on the wed. or friday before the shift(s) you put in for depending on when you put it in and what prod needs are.

In 2020, we were doing two days of mandatory over time.
In 2021, we were doing one day of mandatory over time.

Looking at how we are currently being staffed in our DC in 2022, already it looks like they've overstaffed to ensure there won't be mandatory overtime, but opportunities for voluntary.

Got ya! So not necessarily mandatory OT? But there should be opportunities for voluntary? I am just use to mandatory during peak when I was at Amazon.

It’s really dependent on the DC. I would expect much voluntary opposed to mandatory at Target.

At my DC/dept we've been in heavy voluntary basically all year. As in apply you'll probably get approved. plenty working 2x ot a week every week.

WH has been on 1x mandatory pretty much all year, dont envy them.

OTOH IB/OB often may go home early (and/or still have OT as well, as spot/this business goes, it's literally day by day)

My theory is when target said theyre going to have to sell a lot of excess inventory, we've been pulling it out of the racks, hence why MBP and especially WH have been pretty busy, while IB/OB have been slower as actual sales are not high. Makes sense.
